Working & Contracting In Europe On A Tier 1 Visa

Would you like to work on IT or Engineering projects in mainland Europe? Do you hold a Tier 1 General Visa? If so you may be able to undertake temporary assignments without having to secure a country specific work visa.

A Tier 1 General Visa will only allow you to work in the UK for a UK Employer. However, where the employer has a service contract in place with a client based in another EEC country it may be possible to deliver services to the client for a temporary period without having to secure a country specific work visa.

At Commonwealth Contractors has consulting partners who can help if you have a potential IT or Engineering Project for at least £250+ per day in a country such as:

  • Germany
  • The Republic of Ireland
  • Belgium
  • The Netherlands
  • France

Not only can we advise on a suitable solution to allow you to deliver the project but we can also discuss the implications of working in Europe when it comes to:

  • Extending your Tier 1 visa (if required)
  • Eligibility for Indefinite Leave to Remain (Permanent Residence) in the UK
  • UK & EEA Tax & Social Security
  • Billing in Euros rather than UK Sterling
  • Undertaking assignments in Switzerland
